Good to know you as our facilitator. Till now i 've been going through the videos enlisted under PI data link course tab were helpful to refer the PI basics.
The course structure as per first week clearly mentioned to completion of the videos and simple 1-2 exercises.
Please direct us accordingly and for the future assistance in understanding and usage of PI data link also to my company's perspective.
I certainly do agree for the proposal of giving us an extra week time for our final project. i appreciate the PI Square forum thread is being inspiring for the new employees and even the students.
One key thing to try to practice in Datalink is putting all your information into the spreadsheet, then referencing those cells in the Datalink dialog boxes. This a) allows you to easily modify the parameters of the call, and b) can make non-volatile calculations recalculate without right-clicking on the result set and forcing a recalculation.
Also, with the Calculated Data function, the Conversion Factor option is ONLY used with the Total calculation.
For a refresher, if the time units of your tag are in:
- Seconds - conversion factor is 86,400
- Minutes - conversion factor is 60
- Hours - conversion factor is 24
- Days - conversion factor is 1 (default)
- Weeks - conversion factor is 0.143 (1/7)
Again, this is ONLY used for the Total function.
